    ONE DAY I DECIDED TO QUIT...

    I QUIT MY JOB, MY RELATIONSHIP, MY SPIRITUALITY....

    I WANTED TO QUIT MY LIFE.

    I WENT TO THE WOODS TO HAVE ONE LAST TALK WITH GOD.


    "God", I said. "Can you give me one good reason not to quit?"


    His answer surprised me.


    "Look around", He said. "Do you see the fern and the bamboo?"


    "Yes", I replied.


    "When I planted the fern and the bamboo seeds, I took very good care of
    them. I gave them light. I gave them water.
    The fern quickly grew from the earth. Its brilliant green covered the
    floor. Yet nothing came from the bamboo
    seed. But I did not quit on the bamboo.


    "In the second year the fern grew more vibrant and plentiful. And again,
    nothing came from the bamboo seed. But I
    did not quit on the bamboo.


    "In year three there was still nothing from the bamboo seed. But I would
    not quit. The same in year four.

    "Then in the fifth year, a tiny sprout emerged from the earth. Compared
    to the fern, it was seemingly small and
    insignificant.


    "But just six months later, the bamboo rose to over 100 feet tall.


    "It had spent the five years growing roots. Those roots made it strong and
    gave it what it needed to survive. I
    would not give any of my creations a challenge it could not handle.


    "Did you know, my child, that all this time you have been struggling, you
    have actually been growing roots? I would
    not quit on the bamboo.. I will never quit on you.


    "Don't compare yourself to others." He said. "The bamboo had a different
    purpose than the fern. Yet they both make
    the forest beautiful.


    "Your time will come", God said to me.. "You will rise high"


    "How high should I rise?" I asked.

    "How high will the bamboo rise?" He asked in return.

    "As high as it can?" I questioned

    "Yes." He said,

    "Give me glory by rising as high as you can."


    I left the forest, realizing that God will never give up on me.
    And He will never give up on you.


    NEVER REGRET A DAY IN YOUR LIFE.
    GOOD DAYS GIVE YOU HAPPINESS; BAD DAYS GIVE YOU EXPERIENCES.
    BOTH ARE ESSENTIAL TO LIFE.
    SO ENJOY EVERY MOMENT OF LIFE……………

    A Person, who has controlled his mind, can achieve any success in his life. How far you are trying to control your mind?
    The mind that judges not others ever remains tension-free.

    Inspirational Stories Remind Us to Never Give Up


    Henry Ford failed and went broke five times before he finally succeeded.

    Beethoven handled the violin awkwardly and preferred playing his own compositions instead of improving his technique. His teacher called him hopeless as a composer.

    Colonel Sanders had the construction of a new road put him out of business in 1967. He went to over 1,000 places trying to sell his chicken recipe before he found a buyer interested in his 11 herbs and spices. Seven years later, at the age of 75, Colonel Sanders sold his fried chicken company for a finger-lickin' $15 million!

    Walt Disney was fired by a newspaper editor for lack of ideas. Disney also went bankrupt several times before he built Disneyland.

    Charles Darwin, father of the theory of evolution, gave up a medical career and was told by his father, “You care for nothing but shooting, dogs, and rat catching.” In his autobiography, Darwin wrote, “I was considered by my father, a very ordinary boy, rather below the common standard in intellect.

    Albert Einstein did not speak until he was four years old and didn’t read until he was seven. His teacher described him as “mentally slow, unsociable and adrift forever in his foolish dreams.” He was expelled and refused admittance to Zurich Polytechnic School. The University of Bern turned down his Ph.D. dissertation as being irrelevant and fanciful.

    The movie Star Wars was rejected by every movie studio in Hollywood before 20th-Century Fox finally produced it. It went on to be one of the largest grossing movies in film history.

    Louis Pasteur was only a mediocre pupil in undergraduate studies and ranked 15 out of 22 in chemistry.

    When NFL running back Herschel Walker was in junior high school, he wanted to play football, but the coach told him he was too small. He advised young Herschel to go out for track instead. Never one to give up, he ignored the coach's advice and began an intensive training program to build himself up. Only a few years later, Herschel Walker won the Heisman trophy.

    When General Douglas MacArthur applied for admission to West Point, he was turned down, not once but twice. But he tried a third time, was accepted and marched into the history books.

    After Fred Astaire’s first screen test, the memo from the testing director of MGM, dated 1933, said, “Can’t act! Slightly bald! Can dance a little!” Astaire kept that memo over the fireplace in his Beverly Hills home.

    The father of the sculptor Rodin [The Thinker Statue] said, “I have an idiot for a son.” Described as the worst pupil in the school, Rodin failed three times to secure admittance to the school of art. His uncle called him uneducable.

    Babe Ruth, considered by sports historians to be the greatest athlete of all time and famous for setting the home run record, also holds the record for strikeouts.

    Eighteen publishers turned down Richard Bach’s Jonathan Livingston Seagull, before Macmillan finally published it in 1970. By 1975 it had sold more than seven million copies in the U.S. alone.

    Margaret Mitchell's classic Gone with the Wind was turned down by more than twenty-five publishers.

    Richard Hooker worked for seven years on his humorous war novel, M*A*S*H, only to have it rejected by 21 publishers before Morrow decided to publish it. It became a runaway bestseller, spawning a blockbusting movie and highly successful television series.

    When the first Chicken Soup for the Soul book was completed, it was turned down by thirty-three publishers in New York and another ninety at the American Booksellers Association convention in Anaheim, California, before Health Communications, Inc., finally agreed to publish it. The major New York publishers said, "It is too nicey-nice" and "Nobody wants to read a book of short little stories." Since that time more than 8 million copies of the original Chicken Soup for the Soul book have been sold. The series, which has grown to thirty-two titles, in thirty-one languages, has sold more than 53 million copies.

    In 1954, Jimmy Denny, manager of the Grand Ole Opry, fired Elvis Presley after one performance. He told Presley, “You ain’t goin’ nowhere… son. You ought to go back to drivin’ a truck.” Elvis Presley went on to become the most popular singer in America.

    Dr. Seuss' first children's book, And to Think That I Saw it on Mulberry Street, was rejected by twenty-seven publishers. The twenty-eighth publisher, Vanguard press, sold six million copies of the book.

    Never give up believing in yourself!!!
